Counties in the News, November 16, 2016

Wednesday's news from counties across the state.
NYSAC
Improving Highway Safety Across New York State
In 2014, New York State had 616 homicides and 72,338 people were victims of violent crimes. Unfortunately, the criminal justice system is often only able to react to these incidents after the fact. What many people don't realize is that there is something else going on in your communities that kills and injures even more people: Car crashes. Fortunately we (elected officials, policy makers, government employees, NGO's, and our private sector partners) can have a quick and positive influence on saving lives and reducing injuries due to car crashes.
 
In NYS in 2014, 1,026 people were killed and 160,497 people were injured in automobile crashes. These totals far exceed the crime victim totals and, as such, deserve our attention and action. We have the ability to reduce these numbers through enforcement, education, and engineering.
